Why You Should Read what Everyone’s Reading

Kath's Bookshelf, Uncategorized

At the start of the year I read Normal People by Sally Rooney; you know the book that was dominating every high street bookshop window for a good couple of months? It was picked for my work’s book club and I was so down for it. It looked right up my street and I’d seen […]

Dear Dublin | Day Two

Kathventures, Uncategorized

Dear Dublin, After a glorious day one that not only lived up to my expectations, but dare I say it, exceeded them, we woke up ready to see a whole new side of Dublin. After our first trip to Dublin, I realised our favourite city had even more to offer than we already had the […]

Dear Dublin | Day One

Kathventures, Uncategorized

Dear Dublin, Although nearly a month since we visited, I am still missing my favourite place in the entire world. Dublin. The city that if you even dare ask Aaron and I about, you will regret it. It’s like an ex-boyfriend you just can’t move on from. It’s a love affair I’ll be revisiting for […]

A Saturday Sausage Casserole


Kath's Kitchen

I spent this morning whipping together three lots of different meals so I don’t need to worry about work lunches for the next week. Or, by the look of my freezer, the next month. One meal I made four portions of was a sausage casserole; it took just over thirty minutes and I tested out […]

Sticking to your Goals in 2019


Unkategorised

While a lot of us make new goals to soften our January 1st hungover, there’s only a real emphasis for us to stick to them in January, rather than for the next eleven months too. Today I headed out with the boyfriend for a Sunday morning walk. One of the three small changes I made […]

How to get Back into Blogging


Unkategorised

When I woke up to the first day of 2019 I knew, alongside my resolutions, I wanted to start populating my blog with my nonsense thoughts again. *Pictures looking like Hilary Duff in The Perfect Man as she re-caps her day with the help of her keyboard.* When I fall out of blogging, much like […]

Why You Should Buy Books from a Charity Shop


Kath's Bookshelf

As much as I’m the kind of reader who aims to finish a book with it looking as close to bookshop-shelf worthy as possible, I totally get why people like books to look as “loved” as possible. (Although I will NEVER understand why people bend their covers back *shudders*.) I love a dip into a […]

Sunday the Sixth


Kathventures

Sunday the sixth of January allowed me a sleep in. When I pulled aside my duvet, shortly followed by my curtain, a sunny morning beckoned me beyond my window. So I showered, pulled on my new favourite jumper and painted my eyes sparkly. I sat my camera on my shoulder and tied up my new […]

Three Small Changes


Kathventures

As a lover of romance fiction (specifically Nicholas Sparks’s, of course), I definitely don’t mind the New Year romanticising some of us bathe in once we’ve said cheers and tidied away our Christmas presents. As a to-do list writer, I like having goals to work towards. For this reason, I am a New Year’s resolutioner […]

A Mocktail for January


Kath's Kitchen

I’ve food prepped for the next couple of days at work, completed a brief jog and thought about what recipes I want to try from my new cookbook. If you weren’t aware it is January 1st then I’ve given it away now. Happy 2019! The last two years have definitely been my favourite collection of […]

My 10 Favourite Books of 2018


Kath's Bookshelf

If I throw us all back to the very first day of 2018, I posted my resolutions for the year just as the hangover began to lift and that New Year buzz really start to sink in. I think I did pretty well to keep to my goals but would say I have room to […]
